“TINY POSITIVE STEPS”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Nov. 2, 2014) — An acquaintance of Surprise, AZ Tea Party member and Obama eligibility activist Jeff Lichter reported on Saturday evening that Lichter has been moved to another hospital and shown additional signs of improvement since the update of last weekend.
Early in 2011, potential presidential candidate Donald Trump had publicly pressed Obama to release his detailed birth certificate to prove his eligibility for the presidency. In early April of that year, Lichter and others from Arizona flew to New York and met in person with Trump, just weeks before the White House released an image purported to be a scan of Barack Hussein Obama’s long-form birth certificate.
In an interview early this year, Lichter recalled to The Post & Email that Trump had predicted during the meeting that the White House would release a forgery. Lichter said that following the meeting, he sent a large packet of documents to Trump’s office on the topic of “natural born Citizen,” one of the constitutional requirements found in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 to serve as president. Lichter said that he never received a response from Trump’s office.
In August 2011, approximately 250 members of the Surprise Tea Party asked their sheriff, Joe Arpaio, to investigate the claims that the image was a forgery.
Arpaio assigned his Cold Case Posse, a non-profit which works at no expense to taxpayers, to investigate the image. Within 72 hours, the posse reported to Arpaio that the image was problematic and did not appear to have emanated from a paper document.
A six-month investigation ensued, after which time Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo and Arpaio announced at a joint press conference that the birth certificate image as well as Obama’s Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries.”
The White House has issued no comment on the charges of fraud and forgery.
At a second press conference on July 17, 2012, Arpaio and Zullo stated that the standard of probable cause was overcome by the evidence of forgery of the birth certificate and called upon Congress to launch its own investigation.
The mainstream media vilified the messengers and refused to report the findings of the posse in an unbiased manner. In 2012, Obama reportedly won re-election, although new information released last week by Judicial Watch, citing a study conducted by more than three dozen universities, concludes that Obama might have been elected for the first time in 2008 by the votes of illegal aliens.
In a press conference at the National Press Club in late May, Trump focused on Obama’s unreleased college applications, which he believe show that Obama either claimed to be a foreign national to receive foreign scholarships or truthfully stated that he was a foreign national.
Lichter not only provided his first-hand account of his meeting with Donald Trump to The Post & Email, but also arranged for us to address the Surprise Tea Party via Skype on September 2 on the case of CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.), who was sentenced to three years in prison in August for attempting to inform his county grand jury of systemic government corruption. Shortly after the Skype conference, Lichter fell ill, suffered complications from surgery and has been hospitalized since.
The acquaintance described Lichter’s recent progress as “tiny positive steps.”
The Post & Email extends its best wishes to Lichter and his family during this difficult time.
